An ideal location

Between Siena and the sea, at the heart of Etruscan land, the Villa Ambretta is very easy to access: it is a two-hour drive away from the airports of Pisa, Florence and Rome, and 15 minutes away from Grosseto.

Our commitment to sustainability

During three thousand years, since Etruscan time, the inhabitants of the region have fostered a symbiotic and respectful relationship with the land, which we honour every day through various comitments.

What we recommend

We passionately love this Tuscan region called Maremma, and we will be delighted to help you get to know it by sharing a few of our favourite spots: a nice restaurant, a beautiful beach, an interesting museum, a medieval village with empty streets...

Originally, the Contrada was a neighborhood that had to provide and maintain a company of soldiers for the defense of the city. Each Contrada had its coat of arms, its colours, its costumes, its symbol, its hymn and a place where the members met.
